So comparables from Europe shouldn't be used here because they don't match your overly optimistic view of Josi?

Josi has a great upside, but, still needs to transition to the North American game. He's in an organization with a ton of defensive talent where making the NHL roster will be a fight. Our AHL starting six could be Sulzer, Laakso, Josi, Blum, Palin, Johnson with Foss, COR and Ellis a year away from making the jump to the pros.
